Sunny Deol says that he happened to fall in love with the storyline of Poster Boys, and signed up for the film. “After Ghayal 2, I was looking for a  light-hearted subject. The Marathi version of the movie (Poshter Boyz) has been widely accepted. Shreyas Talpade has done complete justice to the film, and I hope it works.”

Despite the fact that Sunny has starred in many movies since the ’90s, he’s still been synonymous with his ‘dhai kilo ka haath’ performance. “The audience hasn’t moved on from that kind of performance because the subjects I’ve chosen have been similar,” he quips. “My characters have always been on the side of the right and battled to protect his family. Somehow, these characters have been so strong, that they relate more.”

 

Looking at his well-maintained physique, it would be hard to guess that the actor is 60. “It’s just now that you hear numbers,” he scoffs. “When we were younger, we never heard numbers about ageing. I still feel the same way as I did when I was starting off. And I still do everything. So why should I take a number as a hurdle?”

He adds, “I still work out, I still have the same thoughts and ideas. My life has been the same. I’ve always had issues with my back. But that’s been there since I joined the industry. It’s a battle I’ve always fought. Age is just a number, as clichéd as ever.”

 

Sunny will be starring alongside brother Bobby Deol yet again after movies like Yamla Pagla Deewana and Dillagi. Quiz him on how tight knit the Deols are, and pat comes the answer. “I don’t know how life living separately is,” he says. “Being together is so natural to us, that we don’t have to try hard. To me, it’s not been something so unique, because I really don’t know how to be alone. We have always been like that. Every kind of life you lead has its good and bad. But at the end of the day, it’s about happiness. And we’re happy when we’re together.”

 

The actor will be taking over the role of a director for his son Karan, who will be making his debut soon. Did he ever have a feeling of deja vu when he started out and his father, Dharmendra, gave him advice? “I did not understand why my father feared for me. But now I can feel it when I see my son,” he sighs. “I remember, when I was doing Betaab, my dad had told anyone not to let me do stunts. There were doubles from all over but somehow I ended up doing them by myself. Now when I’m directing my son, I tell him to do everything. But when he does, I’m scared as a father.”
